So far, over 56,000 people from all over the world have joined our #StandForForests movement and told Canada’s largest logging company Resolute Forest Products that they want the Boreal Forest to be better protected, respected and cared for.
On the 29th of May, the company is holding its Annual General Meeting in Augusta, Georgia – the most important event of the year where company leaders and shareholders will meet to review their annual plans.
This is also our opportunity to ask Resolute to make protecting the Boreal Forest a key priority for their upcoming year. We believe they can respect Indigenous Peoples’ rights, sustain jobs and conserve critical forest areas. They CAN work with environmental organizations and unions to regain lost Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certificates, which are vital for selling their products around the world. We know that they can do it!
But we can’t do it alone – we need you to help us spread that message. We need you to take part in our global Thunderclap Twitter action to shout as loud as we can: Resolute you can save jobs, respect Indigenous rights & protect the Boreal Forest.
How does it work?
Sign up using your Facebook or your Twitter Account adding your voice to our global tweet and on the day of the AGM, your message and your name will automatically go live to the event. It really is as simple as that! So join now and be part of our global action!
With your help, we can get the leaders of Resolute to ensure a healthy future for this globally important forest.
Help us urge Resolute to invest in real solutions. Join our Thunderclap today.
